Fellow of St. John's College, Cambridge, and University Lecturer in Economics

by Lucie Manen
To vary the timbre of the voice to suit the mood of a phrase or the character of an operatic role, singers have had for centuries to rely on empirical methods. As a result of her researches Lucie Manen offers an explanation of the physical processes involved in these changes of vocal mood and suggests how the principles behind them can be consciously applied, illustrating her findings with gramophone records.
